An Intelligent Chatbot Designed to Welcome Federal Website Visitors
Auxilium enhances the user interface (UI) and user experience (UX) of federal websites. Simultaneously, it provides valuable insights to federal site teams and offers a rapid mechanism for incorporating narrow or government-wide changes that impact their pages.
In the Fall 2023, OMB released a memorandum, Delivering a Digital-First Public Experience, directing federal agencies to “optimize and organize online content to help the public find what they are looking for as efficiently as possible” and to “make data-driven design and development decisions” to better refine sites and support user experiences. These directives are directly met by adoption of smart bot technology to enhance UX/UI, ease communication with the public, and create decision-guiding data on gaps and trends.
As agencies prioritize these capabilities, selecting an effective federal chatbot involves several factors, including security, scalability, integration and ingestion capabilities, and compliance.
Designed for federal websites and public query portals, Auxilium provides a conversational interface that allows users to interact with the chatbot in natural language (a.k.a. plain English). The chatbot provides guidance on requested information and is enabled to take specific actions after the user provides confirmation. This includes providing immediate Tier I support for common IT issues, which reduces user frustrations and improves satisfaction. Auxilium also comes with an extensive analytics dashboard for system administrators, providing valuable user interaction data, which can be analyzed to identify trends and gaps, improve services, and better understand citizens' needs and concerns. The dashboard can also be used for customized reporting.
In an award winning first year of implementation, Auxilium addressed 5,262 questions, and counting, for a single customer’s public-facing website, saving the agency an estimated 387+ man-hours of technical support.
